Should be interesting. It's hard to tell speed from college games. Wilson ran a 4.55 forty which is FAST. Going back to at least 2001, the only two QBs to ever run faster forties and receive decent draft consideration were Vick and RG3.

Okay, now you're just being a homer.
And btw, I just downgraded you from first class to coach on the Russell Wilson bandwagon.

Before I join you in going overboard, I need to see a game where the rest of the team slumps and Mariota carries the team to a tough victory. As good as he's played, he feels more like an accessory in his offense than the driver. That simply won't be true at the NFL level.
I think if you put him on essentially any other Pac-12 team, his numbers would drop dramatically. You put him on a bad NFL team, same deal. That's why I need to see more adversity. Wilson played for a great team that blew opponents out but still had to face a ton of adversity during his college career. Same thing with Johnny Football. I need to see him carry a team on his back when everything is going wrong, etc. Preferably against a superior opponent.
